The Stone Roses have confirmed that all their summer shows will still go ahead as planned, despite frontman Ian Brown calling the band’s drummer Reni a ‘c**t’ onstage in Amsterdam last night (June 12) – which you can watch below.
Ian Brown returned to the stage at the end of the gig as the crowd at the Heineken Music Hall waited for the expected encore of “I Am The Resurrection“. He told the audience: “the drummer’s gone home…I’m not joking, the drummer’s gone home. Get all your aggro out on me, I can take it.” He added: “What can I say, the drummer’s a c**t.”
An insider at the show suggested that there was a problem with the drumkit, although this has not been confirmed. A spokesperson for the band refused to comment, but said that all planned future performances will go ahead.
Last night was the band’s third comeback show ahead of a series of sell-out homecoming gigs in Manchester’s Heaton Park at the end of this month, as well as a string of European festival performances. It follows a surprise comeback gig on May 23 in Warrington – which was their first performance in 16 years.
